Its one of 20 towns on the island of Ireland taking part in the initiative.

Naas becomes a Poetry Ireland Poetry Town today.

The county town was named one of 20 Poetry Towns last month, as part of a new initiative.

Poetry Ireland, in partnership with Kildare County Council Arts Office, has appointed Mary O’Donnell as the Poet Laureate for the town.

Mary O’Donnell is a poet, short story writer and novelist, who lives near Straffan.

She has been commissioned to write a poem honouring and reflecting Naas and its people.

As part of the week-long Poetry Town celebrations, beginning today,, each Poet Laureate will reveal and present their poem to the people of their Poetry Town at a series of flagship online events, one of which will be hosted in each town.
